Shannon Briggs and Mike Tyson ‘closing in’ on £20m ‘tag-team steel cage’ match involving Holyfield, Haye and Klitschko


SHANNON BRIGGS is on the verge of sealing a £19.9million “steel cage” exhibition deal with Mike Tyson.

The two time heavyweight champion said he will step into the cage for two rounds in a tag team set up against the 53-year-old Tyson.

Briggs, 48, told “I’ve been talking to people all around the world, trying to put that deal together. I’m not only a boxer but I’m also an entrepreneur and a businessman.

“I think we should do it on steel cage. Steel cage match.”

Explaining how each boxer would feature in the exhibition event, Briggs said the fighters would step in for two rounds each.

“It will be round-for-round. Literally tag-team. I’m going in for two rounds and I would say, ‘you know what? Imma take some round off,'” he revealed.

Briggs said Evander Holyfield, David Haye and Wladimir Klitschko have all been mentioned as possible opponents for the tag team steel cage exhibition,.

He added: “I’ll chop ‘em all! I put Holyfield, chop him up in an exhibition. I’ll chop, what’s his name? Klitschko. I’ll definitely chop David ‘Feathers’ [Haye]. I’ll make a chicken pita out of him.”

Briggs is renowned for making outlandish claims and first floated the wacky idea of a star-studded tag team event on Instagram Live in May.

The outspoken American last set foot in the ring back in 2016 but will be better known to younger audiences for his prominent role in the YouTube boxing scene.

Briggs has undergone a stunning body transformation to get himself in tip-top shape for his future fighting endeavours.
